Update October 8, 2007 – "The playground coating is postponed until spring," says Mr. Baralecki. "The suppliers could not get us the coating in time, the weather is changing, and leaves are beginning to fall. No problem, the cracks are all filled and we'll complete the job in the spring," he added.
October 2, 2007 – Weeds and debris have been removed and the cracks have been filled; now the playground is ready to be coated. "Weather permitting, we plan to coat the entire playground on Saturday, October 6," says Mr. Peter Baralecki, Holy Name Society (HNS) vice president and project chairman.
Mr. Charles Boyko, co-chairman of the project offered, "Not only will the newly-coated playground have a nice, smooth jet-black appearance, but if a child falls, any scrape on the knee will be a bit less severe." The coating will also reduce future cracking and help the asphalt pavement to last longer according to Mr. Boyko.
The men of the Assumption parish Holy Name Society (HNS) do many good works around the church and school.
Mr. Baralecki added in closing,"Several HNS members who attended ACS all remember how much fun we had playing here!"
Thank you to the Assumption Church HNS!
